Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in West Hartford

Combine The Best Aspects Of Fitness And Self-Defense In Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Underdog Mixed Martial Arts is an official affiliate of the Soulfighters Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu team under Rafael "Formiga" Barbosa. Our mission is to carry on the legacy of the Soulfighters style of Jiu-Jitsu in CT by providing our students with high quality and authentic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training. We train both traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (with a Gi) and Submission Grappling (No-Gi). The opportunity to obtain belt ranking is given for traditional Gi training.

Rank is awarded, rather, EARNED as a student progresses in skill level. At UMMA, your rank means something! Belts are not just given away or purchased. They are a reflection of a students demonstrated ability in class and in competition.

Whether you are looking for a fun way to stay in shape or want to compete at the highest levels, training at Underdog will help to prepare you for your goal. We have classes at all different levels, with beginner level classes to help you get started and all levels classes where you can continue to sharpen your skills.

What Can You Expect From Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes?

BJJ is a total-body training system that challenges you to maintain leverage and control over an opponent of any size. This sport is all about developing timing, momentum, and efficient technique in order to successfully submit your opponent.

At Underdog Mixed Martial Arts, our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are perfect for people of all experience levels. We train in a safe, ego-free environment where you can feel challenged without fearing injury or intimidation.

We're helping people all across Hartford learn:

  • Takedowns and transitions from the standing position
  • Leverage and body control on the ground
  • Effective locks, chokes, and holds over any opponent
  • Proven submission strategies to help you come out on top
